NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi N-Tec 5dr (Review date: 30th November '10)
Size does matter
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.6 Visia 5dr (Review date: 29th November '10)
The Nissan Qashqui: when i first sat in it i was amazed at the amount of head space, i'm 6'5 and sometimes struggle to fit into cars with my seat not arched back, however, i had no such problem with the Qashqui. The main plus side of this car is it's size, you can fit 5 adults or 4, 6ft+ adults in with ease and comfort. The arm rest seems to never end and is a good place to hide items out of sight. The glove box is of the same stamp, Narnia would be proud. There seems to be cup holders everywhere, with 4 in the front alone. The only downside for the space is the boot, its not the biggest of boots but the annoying thing is that its flat, whatever, you have in the back will slide around when your driving, not the most annoying thing in the world but something i'd rather live without having to put up with.
I have the 1.6l petrol, it ok but i some what feel that the 2.0 would be easier to live with. At times it lacks power when getting away, i dont know if its just mine or not but the first gear is horrible. It wont rev above 3rpm without spinning the wheels and when you do it wont go faster than 10mph. You might not think this is a huge problem but if your joining a 50 zone from a stand still its a big problem. You really have to time everything perfectly in it.
In terms of driving i have never really had any problems, i thought the size would be because i was going from a Seat Leon but, nope, i was wrong. I've never had it "roll" on me, never clipped any kerbs and always parked easily. The wing mirrors are massive and help a great deal with this. The trip say's that i'm getting 31.2mpg from it but to be honest it feels more like 20-25mpg.
Brilliant Pratical Economical Superb High Driving Position Quasqui

NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi Acenta 5dr (Review date: 28th November '10)
I bought the Qashqai 'Acenta' on my husband's 'suggestion' that it gave great fuel economy.
What I realised is that for once he seems to have been right!
Not only am I getting about 65 miles to the gallon, it is very well equipped and has a great road presence.
I wish I had listened to him and opted for the Tekna specification with the glass roof which would have made a perfect car, outstanding.
The Acenta has climate control, Rear Parking sensors, multi disc CD player, folding door mirrors, and very nice hard wearing upholstry.
I have opted for black as the bumbers are the big black moulded plastic ones which on any other colour stand out.
It is very comfortable, has acres of space in the boot for ALL the kids' belongings as well as the odd bit for the adults in the family!
The rear seats are well speced from the front seats so the younger son can not repeatedly kick the back of your seatt o drive you to distraction!
I use it predominantly for travelling to and from work in Leeds & regular journeys to Bradford, Huddersfield, Halifax, & Sheffield. So I get a variety of uses in town, motoray, and country roads out of it.
The 1.5 dci diesel engine is sure footed, very nippy and very economical.
I have been trying to think of the 'cons' and really can not think of one!
What a Gem, Nissan Qashqai Teckna
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi Tekna 5dr (Review date: 27th November '10)
never consisdered a Nissan? neither had we, took a test drive and was smitten,
only a 1.5ltr diesel engine but stacks of power and the smoothest of drives.
Used every day mostly around town with a performance of 55mpg and on a run 60+.
We both play golf and the boot room takes 2 tolleys and 2 golf bags, if you require more room? rear seats fold flat in an instant and with ease.
Extras are fantastic, full length glass roof, full leather, heated seats, bluetooth, colour reversing camera, privacy glass, alloy wheels, Cd, USB, sat nav etc.,
We toured France this year 2010 and the car performance was FAB, with hours at the wheel we had great visability, felt safe on the road the car handled really well and we always arrived refreshed at our destination, many more extras but you will need to buy one and find out for self
A step down?
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi N-Tec 5dr (Review date: 27th November '10)
I previously owned an Audi A3 2.0 TDi S-Line Quattro after opting out of a company car scheme...not good when you have to pay for it all yourself!! expensive to run, expensive to service etc. etc. I needed a bigger car so went on the lookout for one...A4? 3 series?
I got my sensible 'family man' head on and opted for the Nissan Qashqai 1.5DCI N-Tec. So yes, a step down in terms of marque, power and general quality...or was it?
I've had the Qashqai now for 2 months and i can honestly say it's the best move i ever made. The car is smooth to drive, has all the toys i need in it (Bluetooth, sat-nav as standard) and even comes with a flashy reversing camera..very handy for the wife! But the key selling point for me was the running costs - it's £110 per year to tax and the insurance costs me around £40 a month. If you opt for a service pack with a Nissan dealer you even get all your services thrown in for the duration of ownership/lease etc. for a relatively small cost for peace of mind.
The build quality is surprisingly good, most of the interior is soft-touch and it's certainly not basic looking. I drive reasonably long distances and can honestly say it's very comfortable on the long drives...pop the cruise control on and you're away!
The downside is it's not tremendously larger than the A3 i had, yes my kid has some extra legroom in the back and the boot is a lot bigger but it's certainly no range rover!! also the 1.5DCI pumps out around 106bhp, a little less than the 170 i had before but the 200lb/ft torque makes up for that slightly....in all honesty, once i'm on the motorway you don't notice the difference from a 2.0 L car!
I'm currently averaging around 43mpg but have had it as high as 53mpg on shorter runs so the fuel economy is really impressive. The complete glass roof gives the car a bit of a wow factor but if you leave it exposed on motorway runs the internal cabin noise does increase slightly...activate the electric blind though and it's back to a quiet interior.
At this stage i cant comment on the servicing side of things because i've had it for a short period of time but from friends who own Nissans all i have heard is that they are very reliable and service costs are low, so far so good!!
What a Car!!!
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.5 dCi Acenta 5dr (Review date: 22nd November '10)
My experience of owning a Nissan Qashqai is very positive. I have the Accenta model and it comes loaded with dual climate control, air con, electric mirrors & windows, bluetooth, 6 cd changer, parking sensors, the list goes on. I was amazed how much you got as this is only one up from the basic Visia model.
The seating is very luxurious and makes the ride a very comfortable one. I now do not dread the annual car journey to Disneyland Paris and I'm instead looking forward to driving there.
The fuel costs are slightly higher than my old car (petrol Vauxhall Zafira) but this car does a lot more miles per gallon.
I would highly recommend the Qashqai to anyone who wants a comfortable, spacious, fully loaded family car.
Great Family Car!
NISSAN QASHQAI 1.6 N-Tec 5dr (Review date: 22nd November '10)
I have owned a Nissan Qashqai for 6 months, bought from New. The car is lovely to drive, very smooth. Inside the sat nav/aux/mobile blue tooth touch screen is fab and looks the part. Outside the black bumpers and trim highlights the white body with a sporty look. I fit 1 child seat and 2 slim boosters just snug in the back and it has a good size boot. The only negative and just a small negative is the car feels like it needs a 6th Gear when reaching 60mph and also seems to guzzle the fuel easily. I would recommend the vehicle as a good all round family car with bit of luxury!
